Start-Up City will be open at Internet Week New York headquarters (Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 West 18th Street) from May 20th through May 23rd. UK Trade & Investment (UKTI), the British government department that helps U.S. companies bring their high-quality investment to the UK's dynamic economy to launch their global business adventure, is its presenting sponsor.

Pitches will be moderated by industry experts and live streamed for extended reach and impact. Demo Day takes place May 23rd from 2 to 3:50 pm at Internet Week New York headquarters.
